Participation from a number of other exhibitors is still pouring in, he added.

IDEAS is one of the finest meeting points of the world defence industry for demonstrating, selling, joint venturing, outsourcing and technological collaboration in the Asian defence market.

IDEAS showcases a wide range of modern and conventional defence equipment, weapon systems and vehicles. It also provides a perfect interactive platform to defence forces and governments to assess the best products and technology to meet their defence and security needs.

IDEAS takes place at the most strategic location in the continent of Asia that is Pakistan, the country located at the crossroads of three different geographical locations and the gateway to Central Asia, South West Asia and the Persian Gulf.

Pakistan’s ever growing defence industry is in a quest for seeking international alliances to meet the requirements of the armed forces and growing needs of the regional defence forces.
